I have a 98 Adventurer with the galley on the slide. The past few weekend I have noticed a small amout of water on the carpet where the couch meets the galley. I thought it was rain water as I had a minor problem with the top of my slide. This weekend the amount of water was much greater. Looking under the couch I had water dripping from the same area. Further investigation leads me to believe I have a leak in a fresh water line under the sink. Does anyone know if there is an easy was to access the pipes behind the sink? I haven't looked closely but it looks challenging. I've been blowing out the lines the past few weekends due to cold weather. I'm hoping I just popped a connection with the air. Any info or ideas will be greatly appreciated...John

I had a similar leak. Tuns out that it was around the drain plumbing at the trap under the sink. The connections were not even hand tight.

I had a small leak from a loose fitting at the cold water side of the galley faucet. My only access was to remove the drawers and reach through there, but when I saw the number of fittings stuffed in that area, I wondered myself how I could ever access them should a leak develop out of reach. The only solution I can see would be to remove the sink and go in through the top. That would be a real pain.

It seems that little thought is given to post-construction maintenance by some designers.

Well, I found my leak. It wasn't in the fresh water line as I thought. It was in the waste line for the bathroom sink. I fixed it with repair tape. Hope it holds. I am also now an expert in accessing all the water lines in a 98 Adventurer.
